this is a great looking default-style tp. and that means alot coming from me, since I really can't stand the default textures tbh, would not even play the game on them, even the high res versions. what you've done here is kept the default theme while adding some of your own style, and the details came out very clean and polished, you can definitely see it in the world. very enjoyable to use imo, did not expect to be keeping this one.
I hope you keep working on it, since you're lacking some of my favorite features like custom ui panels, random mobs, sun/moon/skyboxes and such. what I did was copy over the ui from defscape
to go with this, since it fits like a glove imo. please check it out if you want some direction on how you want it to look *hint hint*
. we could really use a higher res version of something like that.

Not to be "that guy", but we already have quite a few packs almost exactly like this. It looks like you just upscaled the textures and applied a filter.
how about you link us to just one other similar pack? in 128x? for 1.3.x? I would like to see them too. I may not be an experienced connoisseur of the minecraft tp, but I have yet to see any others done this well. look more closely at the textures in the pack, you cannot achieve something like this just by running it through a mosaic filter. while that was obviously used as a base, all the details would never come out this clean untouched. the rest takes real time and effort that I appreciate.

Re-Read what you just said. The only reason this is HD is so the fancy lines blend in with the pixels better. It's not meant to be one of those "Super 1337 ultra realism GLSL 512x" texture packs.
exactly. and I can't stand most of those either, I usually end up deleting anything with the words "photo/realism/realistic" in the name after one look at terrain.png. the irony here is many of those are just cropped/copy-pasted hi res textures from stock images or other games, with zero personal style or custom work whatsoever (and don't get me wrong, it's obvious which are the quality ones that are hand made). this is a game of blocks and low-poly angles, doesn't make much sense to me that you would use photo-realistic textures, but to each their own I guess.
but somehow I can just choose not to use them, and also not post in their threads for no other reason than to bash?
this pack also looks great with the optifine/glsl/seus combo btw. but I guess this is something we could only see by actually trying it out... not to rule out those super awsome shader mods, they're obviously not meant just for realistic textures only.
